Window on Main Street is a 30 minutes, comedy-drama TV series aired on Monday at 8:30 pm on CBS from October 1961- May 1962. the Window on Main Street was produced and starred by Robert Young who was known from his earlier TV series; Father Knows Best. Roswell Rogers created this witty, comedy-drama series is not only entertaining, but also it also teach moral values like hard-working ethnic, friendship , respect, and forgiveness.

The episode started with Mr. Brooks played by Robert Young walked into his hotel room. Mr. Brooks notice that everything in his room was scattered and that's when he saw Elroy ( a teenage boy) hiding on the balcony. Originally, Elroy plan was to sneak into the hotel room steal any money or valuables that he could find and leave. However, he got locked in the room with only $1.19, which was Mr. Brooks's money for the laundry boy . Mr. Brooks greeted the Elroy and offer to let him go. Elroy is an innocent boy, first time on the job, and was paranoid about getting caught and refused to leave. While Elroy stayed with Mr. Brooks he met the cleaning lady who offered to clean his jacket, and a girl who came to invite Mr. Brooks to the musical that she's singing at. At the end of this clip, Mr. Brooks talked to Elroy and tells him that he can leave once he leaves for the musical. Elroy, throughout the episode, realizes that it is not what you get in life that is important, but HOW you get those things in life that makes a man good or bad.He vows that if he could turn back time he would go to see a girl sing at the musical, find a job, and help his father buy a boat. That's when Mr.Brooks offer Elroy an extra ticket to the musical and forgave him for breaking into the room.

Overall, it was a great episode with many funny moments yet portray a valuable lesson in life.

Season 1 Episode 10 of Window on Mainstreet is an old fashioned tale of youth, understanding, and forgiveness. A small morality play that leaves everyone smiling, problems worked out, lessons learned. I do believe the world held these values in much higher esteem than they do now. Robert Young is the perfect warm fuzzy guy to do this, too.
